This is the place to go for Breakfast, NOT Lunch, maybe Dinner. They have great omelets and pancakes. The mood is friendly, ware and accommodating. Nice staff and great view on the lake. They need to make a better cup of coffee and add some variety to their menu. I have eaten here many times, but stick with breakfast food,... More

Gave a friend her birthday party here with 6 persons. We all ordered different items. They all came out together, hot and tasty. We ordered lunch and breakfast. Service was great. Restaurant was clean and bright, bathrooms were clean. Choices were many and priced right.

Just ate a very delicious and filling breakfast at the Countrie Eatery. Since it's the day after a NASCAR race, I wasn't certain if we'd find seating due to all the people still in town. No problem. We were seated and served promptly. Our server was friendly and precise. The portion size was more than adequate and prices were fair.... More

Stopped here to grab dinner and was pleasantly surprised when I read that this restaurant was owned and operated by the same family that used to own the award winning Blue Coat Inn, one of the restaurants in Dover that I always wanted to go to but never made it. Unfortunately, that raised my expectations and, although I knew this... More

We have been there several times over the years. The dinners are big. The fried flounder fills a platter! You won't be disappointed in the service or food.

Also located on a lake,that caters to a breakfast/ lunch crowd. Dinner is good too! Seems like church crowds, special events and a mix of retirees and families go here.Not open real late at night but the food is super. Just go!!!!!

Stopped here during my travels. Opened up google maps to find somewhere to eat and I saw this was by the water. Pretty lake views and the food was good. Prices reasonable and wait staff attentive. I would come back for sure.

Looked forward to this after hearing about it from family and it was okay, like cracker barrel but with more grease. We had breakfast and with the excitement of the southern cooking style up north it just didn't live up to expectations. Again okay but don't understand the hype and will not be back. Eggs runny, pancakes like lead sinkers... More
